Everyone who met Squiggly Wiggly fell in love with this tiny rambunctious squirrel. His favorite places to hang out were on the head, shoulders, or in a deep pocket of any of his adopted family members.

He had to learn to climb trees and was always free, living in a snug squirrel shelter in a tree under the stars with his favorite stuffed animal. 

When he grew up, he met a female squirrel and raced off with her to start his own biological family. He didn’t forget his adopted family, however, and visited often with his progeny! Dolce Perra, the chihuahua was his best buddy and playmate.

While you are checking out Family Forever, you may also enjoy the 1st book in the series, No Barnyard Bulliesanother true story featuring a pampered pig, a three-legged goat, and the bunny who was the barnyard protector.
